Brownie is a 4 year old, 15.2hh, thicker type, Thoroughbred Mare.
Brownie has had lots of downtime, attention and care with us since her time in training. She went into training but never showed enough to progress to racing and was subsequently retired for a second career.
Brownie is a beautiful looking girl and has a lovely trot when in the field with her friends. She’s also very inquisitive and curious.
Brownie was intended for my 11 year old daughter but she needs a much more experienced home than I can offer her unfortunately.
Since we’ve owned Brownie from earlier this year, we’ve allowed her to relax, spend time with other horses in the field and have not put any pressure her. We have not attempted to ride or tack Brownie up. The previous owner told me they had put tack on her with no problem and I have a photograph with tack from her training days. Brownie has been fully wormed and had her vaccinations in March 2021.
Brownie has come a long way since being with us but she does have her quirks and is not for a novice home. She is very nervous around people but has built trust up with myself. Brownie was sold to us with an undisclosed sarcoid on her inner back leg. This has since come off itself. She was good with the farrier on her front feet but not her back. We are working on grooming with Brownie but she is very wary of grooming her back end. She has been good for the vet with injections. She is used to being tied up in the stable but needs work to tie up outside. Brownie is very marish and tries to be dominant if you let her but results of recent tests I have had done recently show her hormonal levels are in the normal range. Brownie’s stable and ground manners are being worked on but are not perfect, again she can be nervous of anyone around her back end. She can do mini bucks and rears with excitement when she sees you come to visit her or knows it’s food time, she enjoys her food but can be protective of her food.
Brownie needs a good, knowledgeable home with someone who can give her time and bring her on. With time, patience and fairness I’m hoping that Brownie makes a good all rounder and has another loving home to go to. I am asking for adult only homes and absolutely no novices.
